The Hogueras de San Juan

The Hogueras de San Juan is the city’s most important celebration, beginning on the 20th june and lasting until the 29th. It is a festival dedicated to the fire, including events such as the proclamation (the Pregón), the setting up of the bonfires (the Plantà), the procession of the effigies ( Cabalgata del Ninot), parades and processions in different neighbourhoods of the city and the main event on the 24th June, the feast day of Saint John the Baptist, when large satirical statues made of cardboard and wood are set alight.

Officially declared to be of International, the Hogueras de San Juan go up in smoke on the 24th June during the spectacular “Night of Burning” or “Noche de la Cremà“, alongside the popular “Banyà” or “soaking” as firefighters put out the blazes.

Once the main celebrations are over, there is a fireworks competition on Cocó Beach at the far end of Postiguet beach, every night until the fesat day of Sanit Peter on 29th June.
